Engineering - Fabrication and Testing of Lab-on-a-chip Devices
Principal Investigator: Z. Hugh Fan

The student will be taught to fabricate lab-on-a-chip devices that consist of hairthin microfeatures. The fabrication process involves molding, milling, and lamination. After training, the student will be responsible for producing devices that are primarily used for chemical and biological applications. Some degrees of research will be performed depending on the student's interest.

Requirements: A student in engineering major is preferred, though other majors will be considered. A commitment of 8-10 hours/week and two-semester-commitment is required. The summer semester may have 30-40 hours/week. Sophomores and juniors are preferred, though seniors will be considered. The position is ideal for those students who are interested in graduate studies in the future (not necessary at UF), with a desire to have a scientific publication. The student should be dependable, hard-working, and willing to learn. Check the web for more info:
